What can you take to relieve gas issues?

I did a search on this and can't find anything! Just foods to avoid. My stomach is bloated and painful. I dont have a lot of "passing" gas or belching its just a sore sore tummy.

I am eating bland food and all - I think its more "I have a lot going on" ....

Can anyone please suggest what their doc's have let them take for gas?

My DR said I can to take Maalox. It has something in it that really helps with gas, not just heartburn and stuff. I take two tabs and it does help. Good luck!

The liqiud maalox is really good too--I used to have a bottle of it sitting by my bed and I would literally chug it. I got used to the yucky taste after a while too.

How far along are you btw?

Re: What can you take to relieve gas issues?

I've read in several of my books that milk of magnesia is safe. Just a word of warning though, don't go with the full recommended dose to begin with. Take about half, and if nothing, a little bit more. I took too much and ended up with the runs. Sorry if that's too much information.

I've also been using benefibre candies, and those have helped too. I find when I'm "gassy" it hurts when my bladder is full. It's like there's just too much pressure down there, so I find staying regular helps.

Re: What can you take to relieve gas issues?

HI Thanks all !! I found that Phayzme, gas x and mylicone you can take while prego - I took the phayzme! And its helped a lot. I have an ulcer that rears its ugly head once in a while when I have emotional stress... I think I am fine - and then my stomach hurts... right below the breasts and above the belly button - its like someone has punched me.

Thanks for you help!!!
